    Incompetence and small mindedness will be the ruin of our club

    Correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t Illawarra hold the power in the appointment of the new coach by the mere fact that Albert will excuse himself from the decision making process because his son is an applicant?

    So the BOD is split and supposedly WIN favour David Furner, whilst St.George side favour a Anthony Griffin.
    Which means Dean Young will probably end up our next coach in the dysfunctional world of the Dragons.

    My experience with BOD's with good governance is that despite all the argument within the board room walls all decisions announced outside those walls are unanimous.

    All good BOD's normally have an "independent director" who is there to ultimately counsel any parts of the board with vested interests as to what the best outcome is for the "share holder" and to ensure "no bias" is evident in the final decision.

    Whilst the above is ideal it doesn't stop BOD's being diametrically opposed on given issues but it should ensure that all members get behind the final decision regardless of personal feelings.

    I see..

    Hey, can you help a brother out, I was looking at the records between 1982-1998 when the Steelers were around, but I couldn’t see St George listed anywhere..

    What success did they have in that period?

    You're not looking hard enough.

    Minor premiers 1985, Panasonic cup winners 1988, Grand final appearances 1985/1992/1993/1996, club championship 1985, reserve grade grand final winners 1985.

    It all depends what you consider to be success.

    If making it to the end of season playoffs is a measure then 44% success rate is not as bad as others.

    So Illawarra are “in charge” of the club yet only have their name in the emblem?

    This doesn’t make sense.

    What a bizarre way to try and show “ownership”

    The team actually sing St Kilda’s team song.

    Which evidently refers to the apocalypse & end of times.

    But hey, “give em a taste of steel” was a crap song anyway.

    But they weren’t.

    Both clubs were at risk, both weren’t meeting NRL criteria.

    Both need the other, and it’s only short sighted former st George fans who blame the Illawarra bogeyman for the failings that have occurred since 1980.

    So from a first grade perspective they won a mid-week comp?

    That’s on par with the Steelers pre-season cup.

    Which makes both clubs as successful as each other so far.

    We all do muzby , but to win a premiership a team requires a success oriented and professional board of directors . Alas the two basic building blocks that the St.George Illawarra Dragons Joint Venture have never had .

    I agree wholeheartedly..

    The issue isn’t one side or the other, it’s both..

    Hopefully one day soon the finger pointing at all levels stops & everyone focuses on achieving success rather than protecting their own backyard.

    They’re losses though.

    Success would be winning them.

    We made the GF in 99 but I don’t consider that a success for the JV.
